Dental Implants Information
Dental Implants in New Braunfels, TX
Dental implants are a highly recommended method of replacing lost or missing teeth. It is vital to the health of your dentition to replace any permanent teeth that have been lost. Spaces that result from missing teeth can cause a need for other restorative treatment if migration of adjacent teeth occurs. Dr. Todd Smith and Dr. Michael Cole restore dental implants and provide implant dental care in New Braunfels, TX.
Teeth have a natural tendency to migrate into spaces where other teeth have been lost or are missing. Dental implants are a recommended option, as the placement of dental implants does not require involving any adjacent teeth.They are made up of three general parts: a titanium or ceramic implant, an abutment, and an implant crown. The titanium implant is surgically placed into the jawbone, usually by an oral surgeon or a periodontist. When fully healed and integrated into the bone, an abutment is attached, which holds the implant crown in place. Dr. Smith and Dr. Cole can then restore dental implants with specialized crowns. Implant crowns are most often made of porcelain fused to high-noble metals. The entire implant process takes approximately three to four months, but is most often recommended for single tooth replacement.
